.e.c.'s work, the fbi's work. do you have the resources you need to conduct and do your work property? it seems you're all squeezed. do you have the right personnel that understands some of these complex securities your dealing with and do you have enough people? >> look. i don't have an army. and the white collar enforcement area i have what you can refer to as a s.e.a.l. team of really dedicated smart lawyers and investigators. as does the s.e.c. and fbi that work on these matters. i think they're as smart as you can get in this country. we can always use more, but i think people are spending the time and dedicating their time to get the job done. >> what pockets of financial services have you found to be the most aggressive. people talk about hedge funds being very aggressive and we all know there's the wagons circling around steve cohen. can you tell me about that case? >> i don't talk about particular cases ever. >> okay. in terms of the areas of financial services in which you -- that skirt the line, if you will. can you name areas that you think are more aggressive than others? >> there'
and oil and rigged containers to explode. james holmes' apartment is at the top and according to an fbi bob technician, he said that holmes told him that he took a boom box and remote control car and placed it outside of a garage car. he said there was a cd that he made. the first 40 minutes was silent to timed out to start playing very loud music. holmes hoped that somebody would come over to that trash bag and then see the remote control car and start playing with it. except that remote control was was not triggered to move the car. it was triggered to set off a device inside the apartment and that would trigger a much larger explosion. according to the fbi bomb technician, james holmes planned to have his apartment explode to distract and overwhelm first responders and he would walk into the theater a few miles away and start shooting. it's the kind of elaborate diabolical plot that seems to work for villains in a batman movie but in real life this diabolical part of the plan didn't work. and, wolf, investigators also testified today that in the month leading up to the shooting james
background checks on whether they could legally obtain a gun. they have been identified by the fbi, turned over by the justice department, and not processed. the administration could say prosecute people who are lying on their background checks. there are also the national instant criminal background check mechanism, is not fully funded by the federal government, but could be. and that would prevent people like the shooter at virginia tech who had a mental illness in his background, would have registered him. when he went to buy his gun, it would have sent a red flag there is a mental illness in the background, maybe he shouldn't be legally able to buy a gun. there are things the federal government can do, fully-funded programs that are already in existence, that the nra wouldn't necessarily disagree with. >> i totally disagree. there is no common ground in this argument. >> what? >> the nra, there is zero common ground. the national rifle association and most of the united states congress is against any sort of regulation of guns, period. i mean -- >> that is simply not true. david keen o

[ male announcer ] just like you, business pro. just like you. go national. go like a pro. ♪ [ male announcer ] don't just reject convention. drown it out. introducing the all-new 2013 lexus ls f sport. an entirely new pursuit. >>> it's one month since the heinous newtown atrocities that killed a
in mass killings, a national with just one gun per person. the fbi says there's only 200 legally justified self-defense hom sighed a year and 309,000 gun deaths a year. tomorrow the vice president will send his boss recommendations for the white house's gun control package. this is part of what could be the most crucial moment in the obama administration. perhaps the most important legislation they'll ever propose. because gun laws do work. studies have shown firearm deaths are significantly lower in states with stricter gun legislation. this map shows the ten states with the strongest gun laws and the ten with the lowest gun death rates. the correlation the seven states in green is strong. banning assault weapons, requiring trigger locks, and mandating safe storage works. the nra would like you to believe no legislation woot help. no one obvious law could have stopped adam lanza but we can make our world safer. public policy is meant to be aspir rational, to try to make the world better. the white house knows it just as it knows the right has gone far extreme on this, so far into second a
resistance he agreed to an fbi interrogation. no comment from the fbi on the substance of that. his lawyers say he was in libya at the time but he was on a construction job. sources say while he is freed he has to remain in the tunisian capital, tunis, he is still charged with suspected involvement after terror organization, joon. jon: he is the only suspect arrested where does that leave the u.s. in this >> reporter: the fbi confirmed to me they have an ongoing investigation and they have agents on the ground in lib a they can't say much more than that. by all accounts this probe is not much more advanced since we were in benghazi in october. one report says it is totally stalled. another says no one has been charged and that all suspects remain on the loose. the problem it appears very little cooperation on the ground in libya. we saw it in benghazi. security remains a big issue. militias are still strong. they are doing attacking of people that should be doing the investigating. so you see the problems. one suspect was questioned in december in cairo with possible links, both to the atta
for ambassador rice. he's been told it was the director of national intelligence, the f.b.i., the c.i.a. but says -- quote -- "this ever-changing story should be resolved." back to you guys in new york. brian, do you think he'll be out for a year? >>brian: we're going to find out today, if he flies to pensacola, florida, in the owner's plane to find out if the l.c.l. and a.c.l. is torn. we'll see. there is a lot of swelling. but i heard that you will personally go over to his house and ice his knee down, molly. is that true? >> i am a very loyal fan. whatever it takes. >>gretchen: we should preface by saying you are a huge redskins fan. >>brian: i had no idea. >>gretchen: she's wearing the colors even today. >>brian: can you seed that field? it is the worst field in the league. the grass is lumpy. >> we're the team in the tradition of the hogs. we're not worried about the field. play football. don't complain about the field. play football. >>brian: play football but his knee is a little unwieldy. >> curt cousins should have been in. >>brian: she is our correspondent in the bureau but yet she want
. it could mean a shut down at the fbi, prisons might have to stop operating, courts would, of course, close. it would mean chaos, but that seems to be what they want, i guess, chaos, which i guess they'll then somehow use as leverage. is that right? >> well, apparently that is their argument. i think the problem is we've seen this movie before. it happened under gingrich's watch when clinton was president. it certainly didn't rebound to gingrich's favor. it ended up helping clinton. his poll numbers went up, and i imagine that the same thing would happen with obama. and, of course, there would be this attendant impact on the economy and attendant impact on people getting their government benefits and all sorts of things. so, again, i think the republican party talks about refashioning and rebranding and i think one of the ideas is to look at reagan. they always talk about reagan, but if you look at some of the things reagan actually did around immigration reform, for instance, this isn't a party that so far is will to do that and embrace some of those parts of reagan's legacy. >> steve, we
rights. at the same time, the fbi reported that 2.78 million firearm background checks were conducted in december. that's the highest monthly figure since routine background checks were required way back in 1998. so let's talk about the opposition. is there any indication of softening there, particularly in congress where obviously these bills would have to be passed? >> well, in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, we saw some key moderate democratic lawmakers like joe manchin come out and say he was open to this conversation. he was open to having a debate about gun control, considering some of these measures. it's unclear whether that's going to be dissipate at all now as we've had more time elapse since the shooting and that emotional momentum may have slowed a little bit. we also see the nra. they're very powerful. still powerful. and they have a lot of allies in congress, not just among the republicans, but also with some democrats. the new senator from north dakota who was out over the weekend certainly doesn't seem open to a lot of these proposals. so it's going to be a le
ceiling. here's some of what would happen. the fbi would shut down, prisons won't operate, the court system closes, tax refunds won't go out, the faa would go off line. that's not even talking about what would happen in the financial markets, including the prospect of interest rates rising. do you feel comfortable -- >> but, chris, we've already addressed some of these things about making certain the interest is paid, making certain that we prioritize. you know, budgets are to be about priorities anyway. and i think that there is a way we're going to have to find a way forward, if you will, we're going to have to work through a way forward so that we pay all of our bills, so that we are able to meet what we have to meet as far as our needs go, and that we are reducing what the federal government spends. there's a lot of waste, fraud, and abuse in the federal spending system. everybody knows that. the time has come that everybody engage in this. the agencies, the bureaucracy, they've got to do their part on this. they just can't sit there and say, oh, you're cutting me because you're
enforcement than we do for the fbi, the dea, the atf, and other federal law enforcement agencies, at some point we have to acknowledge -- and we have been courted more people than any time before -- we have to acknowledge that the time is now for a balanced approach. >> can the coalition of blacks, latinos, and other communities sustain the obama campaign? are we looking at a true shift in the rhetorical landscape? >> i will point that for a second. i do not want to talk about campaigns. i will just say this quickly. i think what we saw was a seminal shift in the electorate and if the republicans do not go to the center and continue to be dominated by the far right, you will see them lose more and more market share. you did not mention young people. the questioner did not. young people, blacks, latinos, asians, women. it does not look good for them. i prefer focusing on the immigration issue. >> what role do the congressional caucuses of color, such as the congressional -- the hispanic caucus, the asian- american, caucus, and the black caucus play in reform? >> i think they need to play a
be great if we have fbi agents in santa clara breaking down the doors of pot smokers. i will. i will tell people more but the federal government than 50 papers from the cato institute. [laughter] >> one minus point and then i will end. this is a force of the anti-commandeering rule mentioned that the a button that is the affordable care act. it seems far removed, but it really isn't. if you look at the affordable care act, the preoccupation of months conservatives and was how far does tax power co., commerce pirate though. but the mandate that was issued in that case is not the engine that drives the affordable care act. it is the state exchanges, but will be i hope the way it works, initially the administration and congress wanted to commandeer states to establish exchanges. then i realized that, we can't do that because there's the anti-commandeering will and will be unconstitutional. instead what it contains is the preemption were shamed, which says the states have a choice. either establish an exchange under our order and in accordance with desires, or a pseudo-stroll into your state
or paying our soldiers or paying the fbi. these are choices that now becoming a little bit more real and i don't think there's anybody in the republicans -- well, there are a few but most people know this would be nuts. >> this is why congress is less popular now than getting simultaneous root canals ands colonoscopies and listening to nickelback. >> stephanie: not talking about you. >> i certainly hope not. >> stephanie: how does this play out? the exact same way? will it be 11th hour again? >> well, that wouldn't surprise me a bit. but the 11th hour is kind of -- not as precise as what it was with december 31st and january 1st. it is an estimate that it is february 15th. we won't know exactly. at some point if they get the printing press warmed up for the platinum coin -- >> stephanie: which, by the way, you should be on. absolutely. >> that would be one for the record books. that would be nice. i really don't think they can wait that long. i think they have to start -- we really should be negotiating now. of course, we're not in session this week because we worked so hard last week and
in the database. when you buy a gun, and they call into what we call the nik system that the fbi runs, that runs it through all the databases, and says whether you can or cannot buy that gun, now, if you've been adjudicated to be a violent schizophrenic, you may not be on that list, and we think that you should be. a lot of the other proposals in the strictly gun area that the administration is making are what i call feel-good proposals. >> okay. >> for example, the high-capacity magazinese magazi. why do people need those. >> the ar-15s -- >> do you have an ar-15? >> i do not, but my daughter does. >> what does she need it for? >> a lot of people who have served in the military, like to shoot for fun at the range, and in competition, the same gun they learned on or something similar to the same gun. she was in the army, she learned on a military weapon, this is the semi-automatic civilian version of that. it's the only gun she owns because she likes to go to the range and she likes to shoot it. >> you heard general mcchrystal say last night on cnn, he doesn't see why these military-type weapons
the fiscal and political price. so i think in a weird way it would actually be great if we had fbi agents in santa clara breaking down the doors of gravely-ill pot smokers. that'll tell people more about the federal government than 15 papers from the cato institute. [laughter] one last point about this and then i'll end. you see the force of the anti-commandeering rule in something that jonathan mentioned at the outset, and that is the affordable care act. this seems far removed, but it really isn't. if you look at the affordable care act, there's, by the way, same preoccupation among conservatives and libertarians with thebredth of the federal government's power. how far does the commerce power go. but the man tate that was at issue -- mandate that was at issue in that case, in the nfib case, that's not the engine that drives the affordable care act. the engine that drives that act is the exchanges, the state exchanges, which weren't even at issue in that case but will be, i i hope. here's the way this works. initially, the administration and congress wanted to congressman dealer states
